Cuba Avant-Garde: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Farber CollectionOrganized by the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, curated by Kerry Oliver-Smith
In the Beitzel and Righter Galleries
June 27–September 19, 2010

Cuba Avant-Garde examines a rich and varied history that few outside Cuba have had the opportunity to explore. Selected from one of the premiere private collections in this field, the exhibition features paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and mixed media work by 42 Cuban-born artists. It illustrates how contemporary Cuban art, while firmly rooted in the specific historical and cultural context of Cuba, manages to transcend the limits of geography and nationality to engage with and enrich a much larger global artistic discourse. Major themes addressed by the artists include the history of colonialism, emigration and exile, political and economic crisis, and social issues concerning religion, gender, and race.
